Synopsis:
Solid, Practical Wisdom That Speaks to the Tension That All Christian Leaders Face Daily

The biblical challenge to holy living is held out for all Christians, but parishioners expect their church leaders to be absolute models of godliness. And pastors expect it of themselves. The reality is that ministers of the gospel are human. They struggle, sin, even doubt. They're not always equal to the sometimes-conflicting tensions between holiness and honest transparency, whether to family or congregation.

The dilemma isn't easy to resolve. Pedestals are lonely, even dangerous, places to be. But how do those in leadership roles express their humanity in a way that's healthy, realistic, and yet doesn't harm their ministry?

In Being Holy, Being Human, Jay Kesler draws on his years of experience as pastor, ministry leader, and Christian college president to explore this tension and to present possible answers. With the insight and helpful candor for which he's known, Kesler helps pastors and others in church leadership to live with the tension creatively, to embrace God's call while expressing and fully enjoying their humanity, to be a true role model while acknowledging human frailty and areas for growth.
